IN THE spring of 1898 ten members of The Society of American Artists simultaneously resigned from that organization. Immedi- ately thereafter, under the name "Ten American Painters," they formed themselves into a society which, without constitution, by-laws, or officers, has continued for a decade exerting an influence upon the art of this country which it would be hard to. overestimate. The death of John H. Twachtman in 1902 and later the unanimous election of William M. Chase to membership have made the only changes in the personnel of ' ' The Ten ' ' since its beginning. Bound together only by ties of mutual respect and of ability, they have held each year a showing of current work; and now on their tenth anniver- sary have organized this exhibition, which presents for the first time such a collection of their works as will give opportunity for a fuller study of their aims and accomplishments than it has been pos- sible to make within the confines of a single gall ery . In the selection of works for this exhibition each individual painter has been entirely free, excepting only that he was limited to ten canvases, and the effort has been to present those works by which the men would most care to be represented, rather than to secure pictures which had not been pre- viously exhibited. Indeed, several of the paint- ings included have, in the past few years, added distinction to the Annual Exhibitions of The Penn- sylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. They are, however, in themselves sufficient excuse, if excuse be necessary, for the second showing here. J. E. D. T. PAINTINGS BY FRANK W. BENSON 1. Girl with a Veil. r 2.**rt> 2. The Sunny Room.
